exploring information visualization

Vector Changes

Source Maybe I should have done something like this for my state visualization of reddits data. It’s the change in income of jobs between 2002, and 2016. It shows the changes using 2D vectors, which is exactly what I was… Continue Reading →

Radial Shapes?

  Source I don’t associate with soccer in any way, but I came across this visualization showing the 32 teams of the world cup. I’m gonna be honest and say I don’t really understand this visualization. This is my way… Continue Reading →

Password Visualization

Source Its interesting to see there’s even visualizations for how to encode a password. A simple 3×3 grid becomes an 9! + 8! + 7! + 6! + 5! + 4! + 3! + 2 (factorial) unit recorder. It’s possible… Continue Reading →

The Render Time…

Source NASA rendered this in a collab for boeing using the 17th most powerful computer in the world. “The simulation was run on 5,000 Pleiades cores and required over 1 million processor hours.” Some visualizations are so tough, that even… Continue Reading →

Checker Shadow Illusion

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checker_shadow_illusion) This is the illusion I was mentioning in class – the checker shadow illusion is one of the more well known illusions based on shadow. Even though it does not seem like it, the “white” squares beneath the cylinder’s… Continue Reading →

Fading Image Illusion

(http://list25.com/25-incredible-optical-illusions/) Continuing on with optical illusions, this one is based on Troxler’s effect which essentially says that if you fixate your eyes on a certain point, stimuli near that point will gradually fade. Stare at the image for about 30 seconds… Continue Reading →

Crazy optical illusions

Timeline Colours

This was in a paper by Jagoda that we read for Lora’s class. While there are a variety of colours, some are fairly similar, and particularly where the bars are short, it’s difficult to read at times.

Rainbow done well

http://www.datapointed.net/visualizations/color/men-women-color-names-d3/ His and Hers Colors: Men, Women, And Two Thousand Color Names By Stephen Von Worley, September 1, 2010 The colors in this visualization represent themselves, the size of each dot the number of people who named said color, and… Continue Reading →

Selfie City

http://selfiecity.net/ The Oxford Dictionaries’ 2013 word of the year was “selfie,” and for a good reason: usage of the word in the English language increased by 17,000% from 2012 to 2013 alone. Now that the term and concept are an integral part… Continue Reading →

natural visualization

I saw this in an article on augmented reality and data visualization – almost all AR mockups show incredibly garish and vibrant artificial floating baubles, but this use of natural textures and shapes would fit much better in an AR… Continue Reading →

Floating Star

Serendipitously, after talking about visual illusions in class, I found this article on Twitter. It shows some of the more recent winning optical illusions. This one from 2012 was the coolest to me, but I admit that as I write… Continue Reading →

Project Ukko

November 16 “Project Ukko presents a novel way to spot patterns in seasonal wind prediction data. Understanding future wind conditions can become a crucial component block in supporting clean energy sources and climate change resilience.” – Truth & Beauty Operations
